Daryl for a girl (as in Darryl Hannah) is a definite possibility! Other "Dar" names - Dara, Daralyn, Darci, Daria, Darya. You could also shoot for a name that reflects the town or county or country of her birth/origin, or even go with Darling as a middle name. So sweet and with a great family story to back it up.
Rita means either Pearl or Pear. Other names that mean Pearl include Margaret and all its many many variations - there's also Jumana, or Pearl itself or Perla...........
Rita Marie combined together as a middle name has a great rhythm. Darya Rita Marie __________ or Perla Darling ____________.
I think that using Pearl is a fabulous suggestion, it fits beautifully with the other names you like. It works so well with the names in your signature, especially as a middle name- Josephine Pearl, Georgiana Pearl, Eliza Pearl...swoon!
When i first saw Rita Marie, the first thing that came to mind was Rosemary.
Darl is a tricky one...Ada is a good suggestion or maybe Darcy? What month was Darl born, what was her birthstone, favourite flower? Maybe you could use a detail like that to honour her instead of actually using her name?
Thanks everyone! I really like Marie (as a first name), Margot, Maisie, and Marika. I also think the name Ruby is cute too and I actually think it describes my grandma's personality really well. She's spunky like a Ruby. Pearl is definitely on the list for a middle name. Its short and sweet which is what I like.
As for Darl I kinda like the suggestion of Daria and I love the middle name Darling, but I'm always worried about being too cheesy with "sweet" names. Is Eliza Darling or Anna Darling to "cheesy"?
Also what do you think of Dahlia for Darl? It has the D,a and L for Darl and -ia for Sophia. I like the sound of Dahlia Pearl or Dahlia Josephine Marie.
